Description

78 cards wrapped in a scrap of sheer cloth, housed inside a lined, light blue bag that pulls shut with a ribbon tie. No title card.

There is no identifying information on the deck or bag -- nothing to indicate the deck's name, artist's name, or publication year.

The cards are very small (miniature) and hand cut, measuring approximately 6 cm tall x 4.5 cm wide.

The card stock is slightly flexible and uncoated, with a slight texture.

Card backs are a reversible blue marble pattern.

The print quality is a little muddy / blurry, or perhaps the original art was a bit blurry when it was scanned in. Anyway, it is sometimes hard to make out specific details.

The cards are fully scenic, and the main colors featured are pinks and blues and mint greens.

Strength is 8 and Justice is 11. The Fool is numbered 0.

Suits are Cups, Pentacles, Wands, and Swords. Courts are Page, Knight, Queen, and King.

I purchased my copy from Etsy.com on February 2, 2007 from the seller "LovelyThings" for $45 USD.

Kaplan's Encyclopedia IV lists this deck in its "Unpublished Tarot Designs" chapter, on page 130.
